For quite a while we have had problems with low water pressure. We just installed a sprinkler system and the waer pressure was so low we had to devide the yard up into many zones so we would beable to cover the yard. I called the DWSD and they came out and according to their gage, our pressure was at 40psi. They told me that they were not going to do anything about it.
Well, the person who handles Hancock county for PUC called me and said he would be out the next day.When he came out he told me that he called the water dept and informed them that I had filed a complaint. To make a long story short, it took a complaint to be filed against them and now we have 60psi instead of 40psi. So much for them saying “we can’t do anything about it”.
Typical DH policy..We have about the highest water bills in Ms, but the water is putrid..Welcome to Paradise and the haven for crooked people..(Oh, and woman abusers too)..So proud to call DH my home..
“Diamondhead Water and Sewer General Michael Collard and DWSD Board President Charles Johnson both tendered resignations Thursday (Feb. 12) amid a growing controversy….”
The “…resignations come on the heels of the appointment of Diamondhead Mayor Tommy Schafer and Dick Nolan to the DWSD board…”
…. According to DH Mayor Tommy Schafer: “There are both capital and operational issues. We have all of these projects going on and WE ALSO HAVE VERY HIGH CUSTOMER RATES (emphasis added). I don’t know if the one-and-a-half percent increase every year is going to sustain our operations.”
